Several years ago, we had the honor of photographing Dan and Kara’s wedding. It was a beautiful ceremony on the shores of Lake Michigan. We recently photographed their first child, Alexis. She was quite adventurous around our studio but really enjoyed our retro children’s couch. Winter is a great time to bring the kids in for their annual portrait. Remember, they are only little once. Trust those precious memories to a professional.
Our studio has been buzzing with families and children who have been getting their pictures taken in time for Christmas gifts. We still have some limited appointments available but are getting close to the Christmas deadline. We created this image of Amanda and Bob’s daughter last week.
Sunday was a great autumn day. The light was perfect, the temperatures were comfortable and Chris and Heather Vander Haag and their boys Jack and Cole were ready for a great family photograph session in their own backyard. I have to give a little disclosure here: Chris is my first cousin. Since we are only two years apart, we’ve known each other for quite awhile.
The boys (and mom and dad) did a great job getting their pictures taken and the setting was perfect!
I have been working on gathering some images for the Western Michigan Fair board to be used in some upcoming publications. As I went through my archives I found shots I really like. They include pictures of the lights of the rides shining in the dark, tractor pulls, demolition derbies and many other activities. But, this is the shot that stands out. I think when it comes down to it, this is what the fair is all about — the kids. The Western Michigan Fair is held in late July at the Mason County Fairgrounds in Ludington.
